When she and her 2 sisters failed to stop Hades kidnapping Persephone, the goddess Demeter cursed them; ejecting them from Mount Olympus until they find salvation. For thousands of years Ligea has suppressed her seductive Siren powers; minimising her beauty and only using her powers sparingly in case her actions draw the wrath of Demeter. Over the centuries she has learnt that falling in love is dangerous; Demeter happily taking the life of any man she develops feelings for.
In the modern world Ligea is now FBI agent Emma Monroe; still hoping to atone for her sins by hunting down and saving missing people. Unfortunately her new partner is none other than Zack Armstrong. Not only does she know he's a werewolf, Emma also has a history with him; indulging in one night of red hot sex with the understanding there would be no future interaction between them.
Now Emma has to face Zack daily, and the feelings she's tried to suppress are getting stronger. Yet with Demeter still on the scene, Emma risks Zack's life if she falls in love with him. As she fights her feelings, the pair work on a missing person case that escalates into something far more sinister.
This author does a good job of weaving together Greek mythology with the supernatural; although I would have liked a little more of Emma's vast history worked into the story line. The sexual tension between Emma and Zack is explosive, and remains heated throughout even as their investigation adds twists and turns to the plot and leads them deeper into the supernatural world. Demeter only makes a brief appearance but it is impact and I can fully appreciate Emma's reluctance to fall in love when she has an angry Goddess on her heels. There's still plenty of scope for Emma's adventures; particularly with the introduction of a certain vampire, but I do hope her sisters are introduced soon and their own stories revealed.
